Protecting Refill: How To Implement A Plan That Ensures Product Safety

With the refillI process, there are multiple opportunities for contamination that can result in a product losing effectiveness and/or building up dangerous bacteria. In order for refill to go and stay mainstream, there needs to be a standard in product safety and sanitation. I'll show you how to create an effective sanitation schedule for your bulk containers, communicate sell by/use by dates, and build in a system that ensures you are never left with expired products on hand.
